reid and move on to john boehner. [video clip] >> they are tired of partisan gridlock. i have one goal, to be obama. obama was reelected overwhelmingly. republicans want us to work together. democrats want us to work together. they want to reach a balanced approach to everything, but especially the situation we have with the huge deficit. taxes are a part of that. >> the american people have spoken. they have reelected president obama, and every elected a republican majority. if there was a mandate, it is a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges we all face as a nation. my message today is not one of confrontation, but one of conviction. mr. president, this is your moment. we are ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. we want you to lead as president of the united states of america. we want you to succeed. let's challenge ourselves to find the common ground that has eluded us. let's do the right thing together for our country. host: ron, you are up first. what was the message to washington? caller: i really think co
congressional leaders in both parties to talk about his agenda. house speaker john boehner responded this afternoon. >> and for this to work, we need to plan for a serious process. focus on substance, not on the at it will require week of work rather than a weekend of photo op. it won't happen around a campfire at camp david or as much i'd like over 18 holes of golf. i think this is going to take time, but if we're all striving for a solution, i'm confident we can get one. >> chris van hollen, a member of the supercommittee on deficit reduction. he knows a lot. good to see you in person. >> it's great to be here. >> we're all running on fumes and now, we have to get on those fumes and solve this problem because the market is right. it is a crisis and it has to be dealt with. what i don't understand is, a little change in the senate, but -- why is it going to happen now. >> first of all, a lot of the republicans in congress have been focused primarily, maybe we can move beyond that objective. the second is the structure of the situation. the cliff creates big risks, also, opportunitie
for coming on. >>> it's not business, it's personal. that public dispute between john mccain and president obama over susan rice. could it be mccain hasn't gotten over the 2008 election. we're sort of stacking up revenge here on the other side. i got nothing more to say about that. >>> plus spy fall, what we're learning about the affair that brought down the cia chief and perhaps derailed the promoths of the top general. besides complaining about how president obama won re-election by giving away gifts to minorities and young voters, wonder what mitt romney has been doing since the election? david letterman has an idea. >> today mitt romney drew a picture of the house of representatives chamber and gave a state of the union address in front of it. >> and the fourth new entitlement, obama care, we'd repeal that one. >> we have a few more of those sugar plums in the "sideshow." >>> plet me finish with a book about when we had a hero for a president. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> time to bust another 2012 lest myth. the idea took hold that african-americans would not be as f
mandate mandate. that's what i tell to the republicans. john boehner came in today. >> involves making real changes to the financial structure of the entitlement programs and close loopholes and deductions working together to create a fair simpler cleaner tax code we can give our country a stronger healthier economy. a stronger economy means more revenue which is what the president seeks. because the american people expect us to find common ground we're willing to accept some additional revenues via tax reform. >> cenk: now that sounds good, right? additional revenues, it sounds like--no no, no. in other words what he's saying i might close some of the loopholes and then i'll put loopholes within the loopholes but i won't touch tax rates. if i was president obama john i got news for you. we won you lost. you want to do it again? you wanting to through this two years from now? have at it, hoss, go for it. no no, i said we would be getting rid of the bush tax cuts for the rich. i did not stutter. i got elected. i got 320 electoral votes that i'll ram down your throat. no we're going to r
not talked about that. this is why it is going to be really hard to get to a deal. john boehner has the toughest job in washington. he is the ringleader. it is a complete three ring circus. >> did you want to jump in net tathere? >> we have read similar articles. they're all kinds of ideas and theories out there. the position of the house is that we would like to resolve this before the end of the year. if you let sequestration takes of that, there are things that need to be done specifically with the war act. you have to know your employees are at risk for losing their jobs. that window has long since passed. the department of labour put memos out to significant employers. no need to notify your employees. if you are going to take that risk, there is a lot of things that need to have already been done. from the position of the house, our intent is to resolve the fiscal clip with respect to sequestration as well as taxes before the end of the year. >> let's take another couple of questions. >> >> and the congressional correspondent for the hispanic outlook on higher education. i am
.s. state. we will speak with the nation magazine's john nichols president of his new mandate for the next four years. all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. president obama return to the white house on wednesday hours after his convincing win over republican challenger mitt romney in the 2012 election. aides say obama has immediately turned to the so-called fiscal cliff of $700 billion in expiring tax cuts and automatic spending reductions set to take effect at the end of the year. under the terms of last year's debt deal, obama and senate democrats must agree on a deficit reduction package with house republicans or face automatic cuts that will likely contract the economy. on wednesday, both senate majority leader harry reid and house speaker john boehner pledged to negotiate in good faith. >> the american people want us to work together. republicans and democrats want us to work together. they want a balanced approach to everything, but especially the situation we have dealing with this huge deficit and taxe
john allen, the u.s. leader in the war zone. apparently he has been in e-mail contact with the woman who blew the whistle in the petraeus scandal. a lot of layers to get to this morning. >> oh, yeah. >> i'm paula faris. >> to say this is getting messy is an understatement. high-ranking officials, two wrapped up in who knows what this thing is all about. on top of that, the fbi has been peeking around the home of david petraeus' mistress. it's getting pretty interesting, folks. we'll have all the details coming up in this half hour, including the news that has broken overnight. good morning once again. i'm rob nelson. we'll have the breaking aspects of that story and also what the fbi is saying about how it wept about, its early investigation in the case. lots of details to get to. >>> they were at paula broadwell's house last night. she reportedly is being completely cooperative. handing over laptops, any sort of information. she just wants to get this behind her. >>> a good samaritan who paid a very heavy price for coming to the rescue. his life-changing decision and its consequence
really got it. howard dean revolutionized the use of the web. john kerry went forward on that aspect. but boy, the bush campaign had it going. in 2008, the mccain campaign was up and down. the organization after its, what they had in 2004 was lost in 2008. it had to be rebuilt by the romney campaign, but only after their able to get the republican nomination in april. it was late in part because of super pacs, which kept the process going much longer than it ever normally goes. as long as you and i have been watching this and before that, when a candidate started losing primaries, other donors close their checkbooks. you run out of money and you drop out of the race. what is happening is, they kept gingrinch going for a while. the process went longer and longer. romney had to go so much further and longer -- here is a guy who is probably by nature -- when we met for him when he ran for the senate in 1994, that is where he was. he has to run so much longer and further to the right than he ever dreamed and in part because of the super pac effort. then you had -- i guess the final thing
guest: john boehner said he was looking for a golf game with the president. i do not know, talking to the obama campaign during the election, they were confronting an angry set of voters, even those who supported them. the theatrics in washington -- we have heard a lot of callers talk about this. i don't know if they have a place right now. this is an extremely urgent thing they have to address. it could have real consequences on recovery, really end it, and i do not think we will see a lot of that. i do not think the president wants to strike that tone. i think it will be pretty serious. it does not mean they will not try to get together in some kind of setting, but i do not think it will be seen the light it was in summer 2011. host: we want to thank our two white house reporters. thank you both for being here. that does it for today's "washington journal." we will be back tomorrow at 7:00 a.m. with more of your questions and comments via phone and twitter. thanks for watching. host: [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satell
at their house. in all, john, roughly 390,000 customers in new jersey remain without power. we know that at least 40,000 to 50,000 of due to this nor'easter. >> thanks, so much, susan candiotti. keep checking with us online here. you can follow us on cnn weather on twitter. we'll give you all the latest information. >>> president obama back at the white house. it wasn't the welcome that his staff had intended. they wanted to greet him on the south lawn. but the bad weather changed those plans. the first family took air force one then arrived at the white house by motorcade instead. >> the president's first order of business, avoiding the fiscal cliff. congressional leaders from both parties conceding the election with a call to compromise. what that comprise is, that hasn't been ironed out. w we'll get to what they said. >> the presidential vase over except in florida. the electoral votes are i will stun claimed. they're not make or break this time. president obama still holds a lead there. >> seven house races still up for grabs this morning across the country including the heated contest on flo
to call john boehner and mitch mcconnell but he was told they were asleep, quote after his speech, mr. obama tried to call both mr. boehner and the senate republican leader, mr. mcconnell but was told they were asleep. i realized it was late night and everything but if the president calls you and you are asleep, do you not get woken up? isn't that sort of a standing order? one of the things we can all agree on the sort of thing you get out of bed for? the presidents an on the phone, okay, i'll wake up and take the phone no matter who you are? no. john boehner and mitch mcconnell were still asleep and no woke them up. since then, they have made statements about what they see happening in this next year, indicating that maybe they also slept through the part of the night when the results of the election came in. mr. mcconnell put out a statement what's clear about this election is that the voters have not endorsed president obama's first term. the fact that the president won the election is not an endorsement of the president? filling in a little bubble next to the man's name on a piece
to doing the attempt at the grand bargain with john boehner. he thought he was going to get that. i think when boehner pulled back and could not deliver a single republican vote for a tax hike, i think that was instructive for obama that these guys are never going to cooperate for me particularly on taxes. there's a much more pop pew louse tone. my guess, this is a guess, but my guess is this is a bottom line issue to him. it bothers him. it really bothers him how they behaved with the debt ceiling. he looks at this as it's not going to happen again. all the tax hikes and cuts will go away and i can propose the obama tax cut for 98% of americans. >> it's interesting. there is this other place where i buy that the press is a process president and would argue for it on domestic politics. he is a a different duck in the foreign policy land. many liberals would have a critique of some of his lack of process in some of the foreign policy stuff. is part of what he's saying that the recalcitrance of the republican house might bring out that aspect of president obama? >> well, i think there are t
this early nobody knows for sure. but you know, john brennan is somebody considered for this by the president from the very beginning. however, there were concerns over whether or not because of his sort of hard line on intelligence issues in the past that he would be able to pass congressional confirmation for this job which is something you need to do. you don't need to do that however in the job that he holds now and advising the president on counterterrorism issues. it's a possibility the president would try to push that through again. jane harman is another name we've heard. she is now of course head of the wilson center. she's been very close to th intelligence community for a numb of years. she's also very passionate about what they do over there and she hasn't tried very hard to hide that passion over the years. so she's another name we're hearing. but of course as the d and people sort of come back from the reeling shock of this announcement today, i think that will flush out a little bit better. >> jane harman was a member of the house intelligence committee for a long time. a long-
. >> i wouldn't think so. paul ryan is a policy -- >> i take that as a great compliment from john. i've been one of the house policy wonks. my role is to continue to be a champion of ideas. >> conservative blogger eric erickson is among those who think ryan should step up. he wrote in his influential blog, quote, john boehner has been willing to throw his conference under the bus repeatedly. house republicans should think very carefully if the faux tan face of john boehner is the face they want for their party the next two years. they should consider paul ryan as their speaker. that is ideological shots fired, if you will. and finally in a few minutes we do expect to hear from which party maine senator elect angus king will caucus with. interestingly enough we know of no one-on-one meetings. this is exactly what everyone has assumed the entire time that he will caucus with the democrats. >>> all right, general petraeus' replacement at the cia mike morell met tuesday. he'll speak with counterparts on the house side today about the scandals, the national security implications, why cong

nothing wrong. political director, chuck todd, who's amazing, and "new york" magazine john heilemann. let's talk about this situation here. let's take a look at some of the facts. here's where we stand now. president obama wins by at least 303 electoral votes. romney got 206. nbc news hasn't called florida yet, even notice, a night later, which has 29 electoral votes. right now the president leads 50% to 49% down there. the popular vote across the country, obama leads by 2.8 million votes, 50% to 48%. chuck, this is something, i know you -- i don't know if you're billy bean or into the money ball stuff going on now, but i have nothing but absolute -- what is the word, praise for people like nate silver but more importantly the guys in plouffe and axelrod and messina. they seemed to have the numbers right and we were all the doubters. >> they had this secret government study that was available to the public called the census and they seemed to understand it a lot better than the folks in the other political party, on the republican side. when you look at what they did. you know, they knew
of the names that's been thrown around, senator john kerry, who helped the president prepare for the debates, has been talked about possibly going to state. there are other names being thrown around as well, and i'm sure those lists will continue to grow in the coming days. as for the president, nothing public on his schedule today, other than the presidential daily briefing, that will happen later this morning. the first one that will happen here at the white house, since his re-election. the president and the first family return here to the white house, late yesterday. the staff was planning to have a welcome out on the south lawn, but because of bad weather, marine one could not land here, so it was a low-key arrival. what's on the president's agenda, moving forward, you've been talking about dealing with the fiscal cliff, also the president has to work on trying to unite the country after a very divisive and very expensive campaign. in addition, the president will work very hard to try to build a different relationship with members of congress. we saw him already reach out by phone to jo

to 1796, the first contested election when john adams in thomas jefferson, that the teacher is 20 years earlier, who had combined to really bring the declaration of independence into being were now fierce political rivals. they had maintained a friendship of sorts as jefferson served as vice president, with the result affiliate presidents and vice presidents elected back then, something that changed soon after. jefferson and adams had begun to form what were the beginnings of the two political parties, out of the federalists along with alexander hamilton, who is no great friend or ally jihad atoms by the way and jefferson on the other side has been known as the democratic republican. that's why alluded to the fact that jefferson and when he was inoculated said we are all democrats and republicans were trying to break the separation. that election had begun with complaints that adequacy monarchist. there were newspapers of the day. the most famous in philadelphia published by benjamin franklin's grand son that called atoms and overweight, corrupt monarchies. he was accused of sending his
